Defining Empathy

I have a real interest in empathy - supporting it with young people, understanding how it develops, and wondering if it can be strengthened in some people or is set in stone. I guess my gut instinct and my own biases, as well as my hopefulness, tell me that empathy can become stronger in people who struggle with it. My ulterior motive is a that empathy might encourage people to be kinder to strangers - on a micro and macro scale.
